We picked up the new pup today. Okay well not exactly a pup as he is 2. With my current work schedule and that of my girlfriends we decided it just wasnt fair to get a young pup. Ended up going to look at a litter at a local kennel with a buddy and the trainer mentioned he had this dog that needed a good home.

It was the trainers personal dog and has had a virtual butt load of training and shot birds. His marking skills are superb and has force fetch done and a lot of casting training. I couldn't ignore the awesome price not to mention that the trainer is local and offered to let me come train with him any time.

He's all machine in the field but settles right down when told to sit. He LOVES attention and will fit in awesome at our home.

Only got one quick picture before we loaded up for home but I will be posting a bunch more in the next few days.

So without further delay, meet my new duck hunting buddy Onyx.

Yeah buddy!
He looks good.
Now to get the bonding going on, and have a fun life together.
Btw, i did the same thing. I bought trap as a year and a half old, already started.
Smart move for those that haven't the time for a pup.

Oh he's not blind as in cant see, i was referring to a duck blind in my thread title.

He is out of a multiple FC- AFC - NFC bloodline. Both parents hold Master Hunter titles as do the vast majority of the dogs in his pedigree. His sister i believe has 1 pass left on her Senior Hunter then will start Masters this summer.

Two last pics for the night. All tucked in to his new kennel until we know for sure he is house broke. He isn't too enthused about it as he likes to be close but our house is only 9 months old so....

Today we built a wood chip bin as Onyx has learned to void in chips. Seems he may like the chips better then his dog bed for napping so we may soon extend that bin to span the end of his kennel.



Did a little obedience work today as he has had time off am is a little rusty. He's such a cool dog. So mellow on his short trips in the house and just loves to cuddle but is an animal when working.



He absolutely lives and breaths to retrieve.



Hopefully I will have some better pics of my new boy soon

5 days in and Onyx is adapting well. Still mainly working obedience on the leash to reinforce that but good god does he love to retrieve.



He's adapting well to life in the house after being a kennel dog for all of his life. Nights are still a little rough in the kennel as he isn't used to being alone and we clearly have some separation anxiety issues to work through.



Gee doesn't he look so traumatized.

Dump the indoor kennel at night idea. You'll do it eventually anyway. smile

I wish I full trusted him in the house overnight not to pee. He's only 5 days removed from being in a 5x10 kennel every night and had never seen the inside of a house prior to last Thursday
